Last month, Girlguiding published its annual Girls’ Attitudes Survey - providing a snapshot of what girls and young women think about a range of contemporary topics. The survey encompasses the responses of over 2,000 young women, aged 7 to 21, from a variety of backgrounds across the UK.

10 October is World Mental Health Day 2019, organised by the World Federation for Mental Health. The event aims to help prevent mental and emotional disorders, encourage the proper treatment and care of those with such disorders, and promote mental health.

GB will be joining with other national agencies in the UK to prompt a national conversation about what we can do as communities, schools, families and individuals to move from surviving to thriving.
We have a variety of resources available for leaders to share with the young people in and out of GB groups that explore mental health.
